The Knights of Columbus organizes an annual All Souls Day ceremony at the State’s Sacred Hearts Catholic Cemetery in Waianae. After a recent cleanup, the organization needed urgent assistance with removing the rubbish from the property in anticipation of their service on November 2.
Knights of Columbus members Sebastian Lopez and Dennis Fortnah contacted my office requesting assistance and in response, we helped organize a community pickup.
As a result, Knights of Columbus was able to have their All Souls Day event go as planned!
City FYI: The City’s Department of Environmental Services also waives disposal fees for non-profit organizations who are in need of clearing out waste from a City area. For more information, go to: http://www.honolulu.gov/env/default.html.
